We took shit way back this time. Las Películas Sábados Gigantes at The Cinemarijuana Theatre journeyed back to the early days of Hollywood. From 1940, The Thief of Bagdad had us all asking: WTF Disney?! But on the serious tip, this fantastic fantasy from the middle of World War II has its feet firmly planted in the past, while reaching ambitiously into the future. So what did we make of this not-quite Turkish delight? Hit that play button!!!
